    Academic teaching

    Bio-Geo-Colloquium (WS and SS), in English

    In a weekly lecture series lecturers report on their research on the manifold interactions in the systems atmosphere, plant, soil, and groundwater. The lecture series is focused on the spatially and temporally extremely diverse microbiological, molecular genetic, geological, hydrogeochemical, mineralogical, pedological, and geoecological mechanisms transport and impact of substances in the environment rely on.

    The current program can be found herepdf, 203 kb · de

    Schedule: during the lecture period, Tuesday, 4.15 p.m. to 6 p.m., Lecture Hall, Wöllnitzer Str. 7

    Methods applied in hydrogeochemistry (WS), in German

    Knowledge of sampling groundwater and surface water and its preservation for analysis for organic and inorganic water constituents is provided. An introduction to various analytical methods for dissolved and colloidal water constituents and for extraction from soils is given. Practical applications are made to check plausibility and to evaluate and present analytical results. 

    (For current dates please search in the course catalog External linkunder event no.: 45686)

    Biogeoscientific career field (WS)


    Career orientation is of fundamental interest to students. For this reason, a new module was established for the winter semester 2023/2024, which combines the support offered by the Career Point de for career orientation and applications with the legal and business management knowledge for setting up and working in companies taught in the Business Competence course. The module is supplemented by a seminar in which graduates from the biogeosciences report on their current professional fields and the relevant qualifications acquired during their studies.

    Bio-Geo-Interactions 1 (Part 2) , in German

    Literature and database research on selected topics in the geosciences and biosciences and the presentation of the acquired knowledge promote the ability to work independently in a scientific manner.

    Projects

    Research

    Rare earth elements as tools for process studies in various environmental compartments

    After normalization to suitable standards such as Post Archean Australian Shale Rare earth elements (REE: La- Lu) can be applied to study processes such as dissolution, co(preciptation), sorption in the system water, soil, rock, and biota.

    However, the application of REE for process studies relies on high qualitative analytical data. Typically, concentrations of REE in the environment are rather low while matrix elements are often highly concentrated thus impeding analytical measurements. For this reason methods for matrix separation/enrichment of REE from the water phase and for the interfrence free determination of REE are developed (further).

    A further research topic is the microbial impact on geochemical processes.

    Lectures

    Introduction to Machine Learning in Geosciences (MGEO005, MGEO006)

    How is Artificial Intelligence (AI) being used in Geosciences today? This block course  will answer this question by introducing the capabilities of AI and, more specifically, machine learning techniques for geoscience applications. Participants in this course not only gain proficiency in programming (in Python) but also acquire a thorough understanding of the diverse applications of machine learning (in Pytorch) within this framework.

    Coring and core analysis analysis in oil and gas (in Vorlesung Rohstoffgeologie)

    In this course, formation evaluation via integrated core analysis and geological studies is presented. The role of geoscience in analyzing core rock properties extracted from hydrocarbon reservoirs is introduced. The course covers the essential steps of coring, routine core analysis (RCAL), special core analysis (SCAL), and geological studies.

    Digital rock physics (DRP)

    The two paradigms of digital rock physics (DRP) are imaging and computation. Participants in this course delve into the revolutionary advancement of rock analysis through advanced imaging techniques and computational technologies. They learn to construct digital twin of rock samples at the pore scale, enabling detailed simulations and analyses of their physical properties and behaviours. Participants in this course will learn the steps involved in CT scanning using the available 3D x-rax microscope Xradia versa 620 (Zeiss Co.). Additionally, they will gain proficiency in image preprocessing and analysis (using Avizo, ImageJ, and Dragonfly). Furthermore, various pore scale modelling approaches, including PNM, LBM, and DNS, will be taught to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the subject matter

    Vegetation is a main landscape feature. It is anthropogenic influenced more or less and subjected to succession.  Particularly dynamic changes can be observed in devastated post mining areas as around Ronneburg. Standardized vegetation surveys are necessary to analyze such changes, for example vegetation survey according to Braun-Blanquet. With ecological indicator values of different species site conditions can be concluded."
